SAN JOSE, Calif. — According to published reports Tim Kaeding and the Dennis Roth Motorsports team will contest the full World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series schedule next season.
Kaeding has informed Krikke Motorsports head man Shane Krikke that he will not be joining the team in Australia as planned because his No. 83 team will be racing the full World of Outlaws slate next year.
Kaeding’s arrival Down Under was only 24 days away and travel arrangements had been made and t-shirts and other team gear had been ordered.
“Of course I’m happy for TK that he’s getting to live his lifelong dream and become a WoO driver and he gets to chase the championship, but it’s with a bitter pill to swallow as well,” said Krikke in a team press release.
Krikke has already begun searching a replacement for Kaeding for the Australian season.
Kaeding won nine World of Outlaws races this season as the Roth team contested a partial World of Outlaws schedule.
